Beatles Card

I am still doing the occasional personalised card as it’s sometimes very hard to say no to really nice people!
So, this is a card I made for a lovely bloke at work for his wife’s 60th birthday.
I found a cartoon of the Beatles as I thought it would give the card a more contemporary feel, printed it off and then added  simple decoupage layers for extra dimension.

I used Anita’s 3D clear gloss finish to the hair, shoes and drum kit, again for dimension and texture.
Beatles 3
The hearts are punched out  of a matching blue bazzill paper
The wording took a little while to come up with , I looked up a list of Beatles songs and chose the most apt two.

Pictures of Ironbridge

I have been blog hopping and everyone seems to have added their snowy pictures to their blogs.  Who am I to be different?  Yesterday we went to Ironbridge, Shropshire which is about 15 miles away.  It was so beautiful and eerie, as you could hear the ice sheets on the river crackle and creek when they bumped into each other.
